Effective Friday, December 7, 2018 the following roads in Mill Creek Park will be closed to vehicular traffic for the winter:
- High Drive, between Chestnut Hill Drive and West Cohasset Drive
- Chestnut Hill Drive, between Canfield Road and High Drive
- Calvary Run Drive, between Belle Vista Avenue and Milton Avenue
When closed to vehicular traffic, these roads are available for recreational use for hiking, cross country skiing and sledding. Aside from recreational opportunities, benefits of winter road closures include cost savings associated with snow/ice removal as well as a reduction of negative environmental impacts from deicing salt. All roads will reopen in the spring when weather permits.
In the winter months, snow and ice can create slippery roadway conditions. Roads with limited shoulders, lack of guardrails and steep grades can become increasingly hazardous for motorists. Always use caution when driving on MetroParks roads.
